In Mother Words at the Geffen Playhouse

Several years ago, going out of the house was a once-every-couple-of-months luxury. My kids were little, we had no babysitter, and my husband worked late hours. The only time I went out was to go to The Geffen Playhouse in Westwood where I had season tickets.

Looking back, those nights out were great and not just because I wasn’t nursing a baby for 2 hours, but because the shows were so good.

Now, I’m thrilled to say, I’m sharing The Geffen with a lucky reader! I’m giving away 2 tickets to the 8 p.m. showing of “In Mother Words” on Saturday, Feb. 19. And wait, there’s more. The winner gets to go a reception before the show. Snacks and theatre, what could be better than that? Oh, and I get to go, too. Moms night out!

“In Mother Words” is a collection of vignettes from more than a dozen playwrights, including Beth Henley, one of my favorites. The actors are fabulous and include Jane Kaczmarek who was the mom from Malcolm in the Middle.

All you need to do to win the tickets is to live in Los Angeles and leave a comment below with your contact information. I’ll pick a winner on Feb. 15.

Disclosure: I was not compensated for this post, but I do get free tickets.
